Brand new waxworks of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been revealed at the most famous waxwork museum in the world, Madame Tussauds in London.

The models have been installed in the tourist hotspot to celebrate the royal couple's one-year anniversary (which is coming up on 29 April). The figures cost £150,000 to create and the artistic waxwork makers worked for four months getting the future king and queen just right.

The models have been fashioned to look like the couple's official engagement announcement from 2010. Kate's waxwork even wears a specially-made Issa dress (the label she wore on the famous day) and a replica of the engagement ring given to her by William that originally belonged to his mother.

I am sure that for every pound spent on these waxworks ten times this amount is generated through admission fees. If we did nt have places like this the World would just be a blank canvas.

I think the people who created these figures are true artists not like that idiot  Hirst who put a shark in a tank or a few saucepans on the wall and got millions for them.

I  hear the continual moans about the Royal Family. Why don't these people think about the income from tourism. Maybe think of living in a country that has what others want so badly - History and tradition.  Our forces wear the crown other countries make up their history as they feel like it. The British are unique and so are our royals.  Put your hate in to making the system better not into destroying the royals who hold this country together.  Get rid of the corrupt the liars and the dictators we have and breath again

People are dying of poverty and disease because of corrupt governments, that is hardly the fault of Madame Tussauds or their responsibility, life goes on elsewhere, I think the models are great, keep up the tradition.

A visit to the wax-works costs upward of £75. Who, except the "Moneyed" rich, can afford this in this day and age to go to see them, other than fore-said moneyed rich, who would probably phone them up and invite them round for cucumber sandwiches and iced tea on the lawn.

I would just like to say how proud I am to be British. And to look at all the effort gone in to these great models of our future King and Queen. William and Kate.

Well done Madame Tussauds!

Usual silly anti-Royalist comments I see. There's only one way to get rid of the Royals legitimately, if that's what you want. And that's actively campaign (make your case) and put up for election candidates at a GE who's avowed aim is to do just that. You won't change our system of political structure by just railing against it on forums such as this.
